Property description

Many updates including 55" TV and air-conditioning..Dogs free. Hillside retreat awaits you. Decks front and back. Newly stained. Air-conditioned, big screen TV. 4 acres of wooded privacy. Wood burning fireplace. Great beds. Brs recently painted. Ceiling fans in each br. Comfy. 35 minutes to Charlottesville and Wintergreen ski resort. 35 minutes to Massanutten resort. Give your dog a great vacation.! Enjoy wonderful grilling while relaxing after wine tasting jaunts on Afton Mountain(20 min) nearby. This region was recently called 'Napa East' by the prestigious Virginian magazine. Drive into Charlottesville for culture and shopping on the quaint downtown mall(35 min). Explore caves and civil war museums(10 to 40 min). Visit P. Buckley Moss Gallery depicting the old-order Mennonite community nearby(15 min). Antique mall in Verona(10 min) is one of the largest on the east coast. Rockies sells gently used silver at amazing prices(20 min). Staunton(15 min) has wonderfully reviewed restaurants, antique shops, and Shakespeare Theater to write home about. This location has it all except noise, traffic, waiting lines, and trash. I am prejudiced, but I rejuvenate regularly in this most beautiful and peaceful setting. Private. Quiet. Secluded. Wooded. Enjoy the beauty of any season from this comfortable cozy A-Frame nestled all alone in the woods. Plenty to do for all members of the family. Or, just walk in my woods(4 acres and more adjacent) and hear the stillness of nature. Premium TV channels, internet, air hockey table. Something for everyone. Home size best for 2 couples or a family. Water heater is residential. Animals very much welcome at no additional charge. Shopping, laundry, and groceries within 5 miles. Cable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Semi-retired consulting psychologist providing tranquil space for families to home base and explore the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I much enjoy hosting visitors to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I am the 9th generation in my family to live facing the Massanutten Mountain. I spent my primary career years in private practice in Minnesota. I am so happy to return to my roots.

Why the Owner Chose Staunton:
Comfortable-like home. Many updates. New furniture, hardwood floors. 1800 sq. ft. VERY private. Big screen TV. Air conditioned. Ceiling fans. New grill. Gas provided. Fire pit. Dishwasher, mirowave, coffee maker. Very private. Cannot see from the road. Wifi. Galley kitchen. Linens provided. Like new washer and dryer. Game table with ping pong. Wood provided for fireplace. 3 levels. Perfect for family or several couples.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Flexible dates and pricing. Very private. Many updates. 3 bedrooms for the same as a hotel room! Cute. Homey. Close to so many highlights of the Shenandoah Valley, a wonderful vacation destination in any season. Note: If you invite more guests than you contract for, I can not guarantee water supply.
